The Mappa Mundi is a map created in 13th century which depicts the world as it was imagined in those days. Not only does the map represent the world but it also represents life and death and how they are connected to each other. After a terrible battle, the spirit of a knight rises from the ground onto his horse. Upon his horse he prepares his journey towards Judgment Day. As he passes onwards he glances back at his servant who calls to him ‘passe avant’, pass on. The knight continues towards the realm of St Peter to be judged. The book of St Peter holds all the names of those who are blessed and who will spend eternal life in heaven. If the Knight’s name does not appear in the book he will descend to hell.
